It’s celebration time at the Ojai Valley Museum from Oct. 21 through Dec. 28 with an original history exhibition, “The Ojai Theater: 100 Years of Movies 1914 – 2014.” The Rotating Gallery features the story of Ojai’s only movie house that has existed over the span of a century.

The story’s genesis comes from humorist Jean Shepherd’s Midwest childhood in the 1940s, as nine-year-old Ralphie Parker is determined to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. The adults pass off this dream by asserting, “Ki...
